Nikki Sixx, the co-founder and bassist of Mötley Crüe, has said that it’s time to give back and announced the good news that he will be on CNN for a conversation about sobriety next week.
Had an unfortunate past as a heroin addict for years, Nikki Sixx has celebrated the 19th anniversary of his sobriety last month. Sixx, who went through a lot since the addiction years which he recalls with regret, said that he is grateful to regain his freedom.
He credited the 12 step program which saved his life and proudly stated that he is a better man, father, husband, friend, bandmate, and the creative spirit because of this program.
Sixx also released an autobiography about his journey of survival in 2007. The book, which is named ‘The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star‘, is co-written by the bassist and Ian Gittins.
Including many black-and-white photographs and artworks, the autobiography chronicles the recording of Mötley Crüe’s ‘Girls, Girls, Girls‘ album and the subsequent tour, ending with Sixx’s near-death from a heroin overdose in late 1987, which inspires the band to quit heroin altogether.
Has a lot to talk about and pieces of advice to give, Nikki Sixx has made the announcement which gladdened his fans. He said that he will give an interview on CNN about a long period of his life. Acknowledging the importance of giving back, Sixx said the time has come to explain his addiction and sobriety processes.
Here is what Sixx said in his tweet:
“Will be on CNN next week talking sobriety, maybe it’s time and the importance of giving back.”
